Why is FanX not Comic Con anymore?
On July 25, 2014 San Diego Comic-Con International sent Dan Farr Productions a cease and desist letter over the use of the word “Comic Con.” In December 2017, a San Diego jury found San Diego Comic-Con does hold a trademark on the term “Comic Con,” but also found Salt Lake organizers Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg did not willfully or intentionally violate it. Subsequently, Farr and Brandenburg re-branded the convention under the name FanX.
How popular is FanX?
